Te Mata Estate Awatea 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Awatea ’09 has a dark crimson colour with lifted floral, ripe blackberry cedar and spice aromas. The palate is laden with rich dark cherry, chocolate and Provence herb flavours, with a fine, persistant tannin finish. Te Mata Estate believes this to be the finest Awatea it has produced to date. Awatea ’09 is a blend of 45% cabernet sauvignon, 40% merlot, 15% cabernet franc. It will continue to evolve in bottle, providing great enjoyment up to 10 years from harvest. It is a natural partner for savoury red meat dishes and hard cheeses.
